Abbey News: April 12, 2015

The Biggest News This Week. . .
. . .is celebrating Easter in our newly renovated church. All that can be said, by way of understatement, is that it was pure joy singing our first Alleluias during the Easter Vigil in our renovated church. Never mind that it was snowing outside. As it is said, a picture is worth a thousand words, so you can “read” for yourself on the Renovated Church Page [1] in our photo gallery.

Lectio Notebook

Let the oratory be what it is called; and let nothing else be done or kept there.

When the opus Dei is finished let all go out iin the utmost silence, and let reverence be paid to God. So that a brother who may wish to pray by himself will not be hindered by another’s importunity.
